The DOB Dravidlan Gadaba about which the present analysis

is made, was identified by Griarson as the member of the

"Munda" branch cf languages. The long list of comparative

vocabulary of Munda Branch of languages given in "Lingustic

Survey of India" (Vol. I page 411) includes words from Gadaba

and Savara languages also.



Laudable work was done on **Savara" by Sri Gidsgu. Rama

Murty pantulu, and a good dictionary for "Savara** was also

prepared by him. Edward Sapire of Ale University stated in the

preface of the dictionary "Savara is classified as a mixed Munda

Languagt owing to supposedly serious influences exerted

by Aryan and Dravidian languages The language is quite deffi-

netely of Munda type and is to bt classified without * reservation

with such typical Munda language as Santali "



Certain grammatical parallels can be found between Savara

and Gadaba.



Duplication^ of certain   syllables in   verbs is a common



feature in batk tfee
